Personal Injury Lawyer
Serving Hazleton, PA

An attorney who fights for victims of high-speed accidents

Speeding has always been a problem on the roads and highways in Greater Hazleton, and today, with people working longer hours and keeping busier schedules than ever before, it’s more of a danger than ever. It’s understandable that people want to get where they’re going as quickly as possible, but not if they’re driving at illegal and unsafe speeds. When speeding drivers cause car accidents, serious injuries tend to follow.

McNelis Law helps those victims strike back.

We’ll take fast legal action to help you recover

Speeding remains a leading cause of car accidents throughout Pennsylvania, both on major highways such as I-80 and I-81, and on smaller local roads. At high speeds, motorists are less able to slow, stop or steer their vehicles, which can make it difficult to avoid collisions. Moreover, speeding accidents tend to cause more serious injuries than other types of accidents because of the sheer amount of force involved.

To recover full and fair compensation from a speeding motorist, you need to prove that he or she was negligent, which is more difficult than it sounds. Auto accident attorney Edward McNelis and his team will conduct a full investigation to prove that the driver who hit you was speeding, which may include:

  • Reviewing police reports and other relevant documents;
  • Preserving video evidence, if available;
  • Obtaining and examining “black box” data, if available;
  • Speaking with eyewitnesses to the crash itself; and
  • Interviewing mechanics who worked on the vehicle, who may be able to estimate the speed at time of impact based on vehicle damage.

You didn’t do anything wrong, and you shouldn’t be left on the hook for your medical bills and other crash-related expenses. With a proven fighter on your side, you’ll be able to strike back. Contact us online or call (570) 455-6335 today for your free consultation.
